I'm baaack!!!!

I missed you all so much, but life gets in the way of my blogging sometimes! It's all good. I'm finally feeling better from my Thyroiditis, Bronchitis (times two), Sinus Infection, etc. What a way to begin the year, huh? Work is busier than ever and I have to say that being busy is a good thing these days.

Protecting the Head... Some Like It Hot...
The Biq Squeeze... Great Pretenders...

No, it's not an x-rated movie! This is some of the signage on display in the Reptile Exhibit at Miami's Metrozoo. Lou and I noticed a trend here! LOL! Anyway, my DH and I participated in the Walk to Cure Diabetes for Natalia, Anilu's little angel. We had such a fantastic day together and it's all for a great cause and because we love Nati! I hadn't had this much fun in a loooong time so thank you girls (and guys). I can't wait to get together again soon!



Here's a great picture of Nati...



Then it was off to a yummy-licious Mexican lunch at Guadalajara Restaurant. I had Tacos al Pastor and a refreshing strawberry Margarita.



And we got to take care of my wonderful Godson, D'Angelo, who was on his best behavior so he got a little treat from me at the gift shop...



That night, we celebrated our friend, Emilio's, birthday at Taverna Opa in South Beach. I was exhausted and still a little under the weather, but we still had a good time!



Here's Emilio dancing on the table...



And speaking of birthdays, there are four more b-days to celebrate this week!!! My Mami turned 82 and my DH's grandma is 81! Plus, my mother-in-law and my Godson also have birthdays this week... Busy, busy! Here's a pic of Meri, Richard's grandma, looking beautiful as always.



This weekend will be full of family time and lots of cheer so I'm sure I'll have lots more pics soon... Plus, I want to try and squeeze in a little scrapping at some point (wish me luck!)

Peace to all, Happy Easter and happy scrapping!!!

Great photos! BTW, I'm totally going to be using EVERYONE ELSE'S pics on my layouts... just so you know. ;)

The last time I went to Opa was earlier this month for a "geek" dinner with K (it was like 20 people). OMG, the music was sooo loud, everybody at the table was TEXTING each other because we couldn't hear each other talking!
